The Rules


- This is a retrochart which commenced week ending 5 January 1980.

- Post in the thread or start a new conversation with me with your top 10/20/100 songs of each week.

- Each week I will post a list of new entries and releases that are eligible to chart and links to international charts (click on the flag / icon for the hyperlink).

- The list will not be exhaustive and you are free to add any more obscure songs on your personal list released up to that date or songs contemporaneously charting on international charts. If you do I would appreciate any links to evidence the release date or chart history to update the archive.

- You are free to use your own personal charts from the time (if you have them) or create an updated list for this chart.

- Please rank your songs from your favourite downwards. (eg #1 down to #100)

- Your #1 gets 100 points, #2 gets 99 points etc

- The weekly PJOPS Retrochart is compiled from accumulated points each week.

- It would be fantastic if you could regularly contribute lists but understandably there may be weeks you can not. If someone fails to contribute towards a weekly chart their previous week’s choices will be frozen and contribute to the chart but the points will be halved. This is to prevent wild fluctuations in chart positions depending on contributions.

Well it turned into a bit of a tussle for the top spot this week but it was all over before the weekend with "Prince Charming" commanding a slimmish lead of 23,000 in the end and shifting a cool 176,000 copies for Adam & The Ants. It's their second No 1 single of the year tying them with Shaky and John Lennon in that feat and in selling 288,000 in 14 days it looks set to deliver them another massive seller for the act of the year.

"Tainted Love" therefore drops to No 2, yet in selling 153,000 copies it has the highest tally for a record in that position in the whole of 1981 and beats the previous high of 135,00 recorded by Shakin Stevens' "You Drive Me Crazy" back in May, it also takes its total sales to 699,000 copies and is now in the top 5 for the YTD.

Already a hit in France under the title "Haut Les Mains" Ottawan looked to be joining the long list of one hit wonders with the massive "D.I.S.C.O" being followed up by "You're OK" fizzling out at No 56 and not much after, they have however rekindled their UK chart career with another song that the UK public seem to have brought back in their suitcases. "Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)" leaps 11-4 (85,000) this week and looks like it could at least replicate the chart peak of "D.I.S.C.O" if not its total sales of 706,000.

Talking about career resurrections, Alvin Stardust arrives in the top 10, 26-8 (47,000) with "Pretend". He last had a hit in 1975 when "Sweet Cheatin Rita" made No 37 and it now takes a cover of the Nat "King" Cole classic which spent 5 weeks in the runner up position in 1953 to give him another hit- let's see if this can do any better!

Elsewhere OMD make waves with "Souvenir" which climbs 8-3 (86,000) but is way off the pace of the top 2 sales. Moving down this week are Cliff Richard 4-5 (83,000), Aneka 3-6 (50,000), ELO 5-7 (50,000) Rolling Stones 7-9 (40,000) and Human League 6-10 (36,000)

This is the point where the chart goes crazy!! 6 songs fall 33 spots or more, no song had a worse week than Gemini Dream by the Moody Blues as it falls 46 to #94. It was sort of a bittersweet week for the Moody Blues becaue the followup song "the Voice" hit #1
